June Bee Block...Christmastime is Here...

I am way early for my Sew.Bee.Create bee block for June because the fabric arrived last week and she posted a tutorial a few days ago...and, I got right on it!  :)  Let me explain...

So Melissa asked for a block from Sweetwater's Countdown to Christmas line in a block design that she put together for the Accuquilt Barn Quilt competition this year.  She calls it the Spinning or Spiraling Block.

I will say, it has many pieces...and points...hopefully I did it up to her expectations.  If you would like to make some of these beauties for yourself you can find her post with the tutorial here.


I love the text prints in this but was driven a bit batty trying to keep them all right-side-up...I failed at that!  Statistically, they are mostly right-side-up...

I'm glad my background fabric was a polka dot one. It looks great.

I love, love, love your comment, "statistically they are mostly right-side up!" Makes me smile (I would do the same....)

I think the words in all directions are great. That way any way you are under the quilt you'll be able to read it. :) Nice job on all of those points!
